Jeff Fogel is a candidate for Commonwealth's
Attorney here in Charlottesville, Virginia. After graduating from
Rutgers School of Law in 1969, Jeff received a fellowship to work
providing legal services to indigent residents in Newark, New Jersey.
After several years, he left that position to become a highly touted
criminal defense lawyer. Recognizing that he was limited in impact by
representing one criminal defendant at a time, Jeff moved into a civil
rights practice with the hope of having an impact on the criminal
justice system while preserving the constitutional rights of everyone.
Jeff has practiced in NJ, NY, PR and, for the last 10 years, Virginia.
He has been the executive and legal director of the ACLU of New Jersey
and the Legal Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights while
teaching civil rights, civil liberties and trial practice at Rutgers and
NYU School of Law. See http://fogelforcca.us
